44 Plays for 44 Presidents
Next up is the theatrical phenomenon, "44 Plays for 44 Presidents," a nationwide event connecting theaters and audiences all over the country. "44 Plays" is a decidedly non-partisan jaunt through the lives of the 44 commanders-in-chief, from George Washington to Barack Obama. Using comedy, drama, dance and music, actors conjure a theatrical experience that recounts the entire history of our country's highest office. SCAD's production will be part of the National Plays for Presidents Festival, the largest election-year theater project in American history, with 44 different productions across the country from regional theatres to high school drama departments."44 Plays for 44 Presidents" is written by Andy Bayiates, Sean Benjamin, Genevra Gallo-Bayiates, Chloë Johnston and Karen Weinberg, and is directed by SCAD performing arts professor David Storck.
